About this event
On Sunday 3rd of April, we’ll be opening our doors from 15:00 till sunset for a special afternoon hang out with Eat Ethio.
Eat Ethio is a multilayered project that proudly celebrates the culture of Ethiopia by merging the relationship between food, music and artistry. Originally founded in the bustling city of Shanghai by Ethiopian native, cook and herbalist Helina and designer and partner Scott, Eat Ethio shares it’s ethos via supper clubs, pop-ups and collaborations, as well as through recipe development, working with the likes of Apartamento Magazne and Film Africa.
The pair also like to takeover the decks, previously holding down a monthly residency at the Hong Kong audiophile sanctuary, The Music Room Potato Head as well as collaborating with Analogue Foundation and Brilliant Corners for Giant Steps in London and guest appearing on the South London collective Touching Bass’ radio show on NTS Radio which was recently voted as ‘Best Mixes of 2021’ by Mix Mag.
Helina and Scott have been collecting rare Ethio Jazz records for over 10 years, with a particular interest in the 60 – 70s Swing, Jazz and Funk era. Their hope is to preserve and pass on this unique music for the next generation as well as share with as many along the way!
Some of these beautiful records have now been reissued, of which a carefully curated selection can be found on Eat Ethio’s online shop. Expect a journey, through the golden era of Ethiopia’s retro musical landscape, the magical sound of Ethiopian jazz and funk infused with traditional instruments.
This is a family friendly session — Come through, feed your ears!
